Hopefully the topic title is self explainatory. Pretty much I was browsing the forums and I came across a certain response in a thread about not being able to talk tosomeone who isn't as tech savy as them so it got me thinking, how many people here are interested/working in/going to college for a STEM field on crunchyroll? Pretty much just looking to see who on CR who has both an interest for anime and some type of STEM field. So tell us the field, a bit about yourself. (Definitely include what caused you to take interest!) I guess I'll start the sound off since I'm the OP.

I'm Interested in Computer Science and Information Technology, programming languages I know are Python and a bit of C# and Java. Currently studying for an associates degree in networking and security Hopefully want move on to complete a proper CS degree for my bachelors. My Interest started in elementary school, I got really into it in middle school. a computer got a Trojan and I learned how to remove it using some special tool and some registry edits. It was the trojan Vundo in case anyone is interested lmao!

I'm currently trolling around on a chat server/client, I've written the server in Python and the client in C# currently trying to make a user account system for it so the server is going to be running DB to hold the user accounts... Anyways Let me stop ranting and open the flood gates.

I love <3 Miku does that count?



Also I know a little bit of C++ and Java.

I'm in a Bachelors degree for IT Networking... and I've been interested in computers since I remember, especially because I was from a country where I couldn't go out a lot and had to stay home often... Unfortunately it was not well developed so had limited resources to learn more.

I know a bit of C++, C, Java and some web development, but everything in the beginner's level, not enough to stand alone to create programs and stuff yet sadly...

I'm into optimization and performance enhancing computers, due to my gamer background, and I get interested in anything computer related real quick although also as fast when losing interest XD! ADHD maybe

Considering most technology these days is too complicated, too expensive, and doesn't even serve much of a purpose, I'll pass. I can't stand tech-zombies that need to be online or on an app 24/7.

Ahh, now this is my kind of area!

I've got BS's in Computer Science and Math.. around age 14 I started playing text based RPG games on dial up BBS's, since that's what was available at the time, and decided that I wanted to make my own based on Macross / Robotech instead of the fantasy setting of the one I was on. Learned Pascal for making that, then moved to C, C++, Python, PHP, C#, Objective C, JS, Java, and probably a dozen more that I can't recall offhand.

Professionally, I've done game programming, simulations, heavy data processing / visualization, and phone apps, plus side projects like CNC controllers for the fun of it. Love the field, there's always something more to learn.

Phython... Pthyton... The last thing I can recall that use that was Plex, after that it went missing to my knowledge.
in school they only teached ou C, C++, and that it and few Java Script.

Now at days the only thing I do is syllogism in law... which is kind of similar

I know Lua. It's really easy and a really good starting point for computer programming. I'd recommend learning it, it doesn't take all that long.

Eh, it's still useful for a little tools, and pretty common in certain fields. We used it as a scripting language for mission design in a couple of the games I was on, which of course meant all kinds of ridiculous things during development (before we locked it down), like running an email client within the game, or even the build process for the game itself, just because we could

Not me. I tried a computer programming class during math this year, just not my cup of tea. Never been big into computers.

Now if you wanna talk racecars with downforce, camber, dampers, caster, and all that other fun stuff then I'm your guy.

Yeah I'm with ^this guy I suck at this

Python is such a fun language to use! It's got it's use in a few fields on the web side it's used on the backend most popular of the web frameworks is django. It's used a quite a bit in science and statistics, for things like machine learning because of it's simplicity. In terms of pure speed c++/c or languages that use JIT compilation of code on a VM like Java or C# got it beat but it's simplicity means a lot of modules and frameworks get written in c or c++ and we use python code to interface with those modules.

Eclair's response kinda made me sad haha, I understand what she means especially if you follow the Tech scene in silicon valley. HOW MANY FREAKING SNAPCHAT/SECRET CLONES DO WE NEED DANG IT. What I'm really interested in now-a-days in Data Science, you can gain so many interesting insights with machine learning and statistics.

Like someone using a genetic algorithmn to map a near optimal route through a major landmark in all 50 states.

(Haha I just realized the code on github for the algorithmn was written in python)

I teach computer science and programming, so it's safe to say I'm interested in it. I know C#, C++, Java, VB, VB Script, Javascript, a little C and assembler language also. My dad was a computer programmer for nearly 30 years. I've played around a bit with Python, but not too much.

Solving problems by writing programs is fun and relaxing to me. Now if I could just come up with an idea like Angry Birds or Candy Crush, I'll be set.

I did computer science in college, have no interest in working in STEM though.

I mostly program as a hobby. Mostly C and C++ but have done Intel syntax assembly (DOS days. So haven't touched it since segmented memory was a thing),Java, PHP, and various flavors of BASIC.

I'm pretty awful at it. I know basic computer functions and how to use essential programs but that's about it. There's a need to be at least somewhat tech saavy these days but I have no interest, drive, or talent in constantly keeping up with the latest and greatest, much preferring to do things the old fashioned way if possible. Methods are like machines. No need to fix em if they ain't broke.

Tech stuff is where it's at these days, so your interest may be a beneficial and lucrative one.
